A substantial volume of STBs has been ordered so far with further orders expected as the service area grows.
The service will provide subscribers with full triple-play telephone, broadband internet and television and is the first time that a multiple advanced service has been available within the country.
Vodatel will provide its triple-play service via fibre to the home (FTTH), a broadband telecommunications system, based on fibre-optic cables and associated optical electronics. Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Zagreb, the system integrator for this project, will install and maintain this network.
Sebastian Popovic, CEO of Vodatel, said: 'Consumers in Croatia will be experiencing a broadcasting format which is completely new to them thanks to our service. It is imperative that their first encounter with IPTV is faultless.'
'Therefore, we needed a highly dependable and proven STB that was where Amino came in.'
All of Amino's STBs are pre-tested with the main value chain component suppliers, including all leading browser, conditional access and middleware providers, making for fast time to market and a reliable product.
Roy Kirsopp, VP & general manager of Amino Commun-ications, said: 'This deployment is an important step for Amino as it brings IPTV to a previously untapped market and demonstrates our dedication to driving the geographic spread of the technology to new areas across the globe.'
